“happy birthday to me”
Well actually my birthday was day before yesterday.
But in a world where phone pics, text msgs, and personal devices
consume every special moment,
i decided to spend the day in quest of reflection,
enjoying all the beauty around me
and appreciating all the wonder in my life –
no cell phone, no computer, no e-mail or blogs
just peace and wonder.
The flowers are a gift from me to me
as a nod to simplicity and beauty
in this harried and crazy world.
This sunflower is not a perfect specimen
— a little messy, floppy, oddly formed;
the other flowers each expressing
A little backlight of sun for a perfect canvas.
Just a moment, a special day
to nurture and receive.
